John Deere 2700 and 2750 PrecisionCut™ and E-Cut™ Hybrid Triplex Mowers Receive AE50 Award Honour

Top engineering experts praised the innovative design of the triplex mowers

Crestmead, Queensland (21 January, 2020) — The John Deere 2700 and 2750 PrecisionCut™ and E-Cut™ Hybrid Triplex Mowers were honoured as a 2020 AE50 Award winner by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE). Each year the AE50 awards highlight the most innovative designs in product engineering in the food and agriculture industry, as chosen by a panel of international engineering experts.

The development of the 2700 and 2750 reel mowers was based on customer needs and challenges, most importantly, the struggle to find quality labour and tight operating budgets. With this in mind, the triplex mowers are equipped with the proven advanced TechControl system, which is passcode protected and allows superintendents, technicians, and other trusted supervisors to input commands, controlling nearly everything regarding the operator's performance, including frequency of clip, turn speed, clean up pass speed, and how fast the cutting units raise and lower. Engines on all models are electronically controlled, and include an Eco mode, which automatically reduces engine speed when mowing, saving up to 30% in fuel and up to 3 dB(A) in sound levels. The lightweight open platform design with a low center of gravity ensures excellent stability and traction performance. The 2700 and 2750 Triplex Mowers offer a 157.5 cm (62 in.) mowing width and mow speeds of up to 9.7 kph for increased productivity.

"Our customers are battling a variety of challenges, from labour to budgets. The 2700 and 2750 Triplex Mowers were designed to directly tackle these concerns and take the stress out of mowing," said Brad Aldridge, product manager, John Deere Golf. "From the innovative TechControl system to the open platform design and excellent cut quality, these machines allow for a precise, uniform cut, regardless of the operator. Now every operator can be your best operator."

ASABE is an international scientific and educational organisation dedicated to the advancement of engineering applicable to agricultural, food, and biological systems. Each year the ASABE announces the AE50 awards and presents the award at the ASABE Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference in Louisville, Ky., in February.

The new 2700 and 2750 Triplex Mowers will be available to order in early February, 2020. For the latest news and product launch information from John Deere, see your local John Deere dealer.
